Monitoring Rivers for Flood Early Warning: Nepal's Ingenious Solutions


Extreme regular flooding in Nepal results in significant loss of life, property, and livelihoods (Practical Action, 2016; Bhandari et al., 2018). By monitoring river levels, warnings and alerts can be issued before the river passes dangerous levels, allowing people to
undertake preparedness actions and evacuate to safe locations before the flood water reaches them.
